Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Yes, the title of the Now That's What I Call Music series is corny, but the compilations are undeniably entertaining and even useful. For instance, Now, Vol. 2 contains 18 tracks, almost all of them hits from 1998 and 1999 Sublime's 1996 hit "What I Got" being the major exception to the rule.

If you're keeping track, you'll notice that the above songs take up over half of the record, and that makes the disc a real bargain. The remaining songs might not be as good, but they are decent, representative tunes from 1999 and help make Now That's What I Call Music, Vol. 2 an entertaining snapshot of a fleeting era in pop music history.
